Index of articles relating to English medieval history

Index of articles relating to English medieval history

Niall C.E.J. O’Brien

In May 2013 the first article on my medieval blog was published. It told the story of Adam Pode in fourteenth century Gloucester. Adam Pode was a real person but his name gave an extra meaning to the first article as Adam was said to be the first man. His surname of Pode is near IPod and the modern technology that allows a person to write a blog and have it viewed around the world.

Since then I have written a number of articles on medieval England. Many of the articles relate to the West of England and the South West as I am a member of a number of Record Societies in that part of the world. These societies: Oxford Historical Society, Bristol Record Society, Somerset Record Society and the Devon & Cornwall Record Society among others produce edited versions of medieval manuscripts in book form, sometimes retaining the Medieval Latin but more often these days just providing an English translation. The Societies also publish edited versions of manuscripts up to the Twentieth century such as the Gerry Tregidga edited Killerton, Camborne and Westminster: The Political Correspondence of Sir Francis and Lady Acland, 1910-29 (Devon & Cornwall Record Society, New Series, Volume 48 Gerry Tregidga edited Killerton, Camborne and Westminster: The Political Correspondence of Sir Francis and Ldy Acla).

It little serves the advancement of knowledge and enjoyment to have these source books and not shared them with others; hence the writing of history based on these books and others. The articles are arranged according to county and then to period in time. General articles and those relating to a specific subject follow the county list. I hope you enjoy the articles and find them interesting; Thanks.
